Start Training is proud to offer nationally recognised traffic management safety courses for the construction and infrastructure industries. Traffic Management Safety is vital for roadworks and construction sites to alert drivers, workers and pedestrians of situations in which traffic conditions have changed or deteriorated. Traffic signs, lights, bats and speed signs are essential to ensure the safety of construction workers, pedestrians and drivers alike.

An efficient, well considered traffic control plan can assist with the efficient completion of construction projects and the prevention of accidents in Melbourne.

What You Learn on a Traffic Management Course

The traffic management course from Start Training offers two nationally recognised units of competency that will help you gain employment and vital skills at implementing traffic management plans and controlling traffic. You will learn theoretical and practical knowledge using our simulated traffic control area in Ferntree Gully. We offer:

  • RIIWHS302E – Implement Traffic Management Plans
  • RIIWHS205E – Control Traffic with Stop-Slow Bat

Benefits of Traffic Management

The benefits of a traffic management course include improved safety and efficiency on construction worksites. Traffic management plans can help to prevent accidents when consistently enforced and efficiently planned. A traffic control plan will identify risks and be guided by site conditions, traffic volumes and work activities. Guided by the plan, bat crew, signs and devices will be positioned or installed, and the traffic will be monitored. Procedures for initiating and closing down traffic control will be a part of your traffic management plan.

Utilising Stop-Slow Bats to Control Traffic

Start Training includes training with a Stop-Slow bat as a part of our traffic management training. The course teaches:

  • Directing traffic with a Stop-Slow bat
  • Application of procedures and policies for traffic management
  • Application of signs
  • Assessment of risks
  • Use of communication devices and personal safety equipment
